Patrick Ward and Cornelius Tucker, for the murder of Nicholas Costelloe, at Murroe. John Costelloe sworn—Was cousin german to the deceased ; knows how he came by his death they were going to funeral in Murroe—a party of men were beating Daniel Magrath, the deceased interfered and he was struck with a stone by John Tucker, who was desired to do so by the prisoner Cornelius Tucker; Ward also struck him with a stone, and Costelloe died in 13 days after. Cross-examined: lt was on the evening of the ? December last that the fight took place; saw whiskey drank; witness drank two glasses; the deceased had a rod in his hand did not see him strike any one ; deceased was brought home after being struck, in car by his father the same craning. Daniel Magrath sworn—Remembers the day that Costelloe was struck—and corroborated the testimony of the last witness. To question from a Juror, witness said that one of the Tuckers was killed a hurling seven years ago, and then he [Magrath] was tried for the same, and that was the reason that Tucker’s party wanted to waylay him, and obtain satisfaction ; witness was confined six months in gaol on account of Tucker’s death.
FOR THE DEFENCE. Wm. Hayes sworn—Was at the funeral ; saw Magrath and Costelloe wheeling and calling out for Tucker—the prisoner Ward was on horseback, and called out that was no fit place for shouting or fighting, and deceased came and asked him what it was to him,  and struck Ward and knocked him off the horse ; Costelloe was then knocked down ; witness and another brought Ward away. W…y Boland sworn—Was riding behind the prisoner Ward at the funeral; the deceased (Costelloe) struck Ward off the horse, described by last witness —Guilty.
